April 7, 2011: Kelly Sue DeConnick on Writing Supergirl

Supergirl #65 ComicBookResources.com caught up with Kelly Sue DeConnick to talk to her about her 3-issue run on the monthly "Supergirl" comic book title.

    CBR News: Your first issue of "Supergirl" hits stores June 15. What can you tell us about your arc?

    Kelly Sue DeConnick: Gifted kids have started disappearing from the area surrounding Stanhope College and one of them reappears in Metropolis, unable to tell them where she's been or why. Lois Lane and Supergirl team up to investigate.

    And there's a classic villain who should look familiar to DCU readers. How's that for a taunt? Don't worry; I don't actually keep it a secret for long.

    With regards to the Kara/Lois team-up, what's your take on their relationship?

    In my take, Lois assumes a familiarity that's unearned and the two have to figure their relationship out. It's awkward, but there's humor and mutual respect at the base, so they get there.

Read the entire interview at the CBR website.

Look for the first part of Kelly's 3-issue run starting in "Supergirl #65" available June 15th.
